Subject: Creeley Mulls
Life not so much of the mind, as in the mind. Ranging across notions of living and dying imagination as reality, or not, with mention of many including Olson, Borroughs, Ginsberg, Paul Metcalf (great grandson of Melville) Ed Dorn and quotes Berrigan as saying "of course I want to die. I want the whole trip". But, he says, not yet. It's like llistening to him think aloud, with a sense that his audience is gleaning clues not just to poetry but how to live, and his desire is to isolate the important questions of value, persistence, what can be known in June of 1986.
